Noah & the Ark
Today’s Bible story is about Noah and the ark. By the time Noah lived—10 generations after Adam—people had stopped following God. In fact, Scripture describes the terrible situation: “Man’s wickedness was widespread on the earth ... every scheme his mind thought of was nothing but evil all the time” (Gen. 6:5). God was right to punish this sin. He decided to send a flood to cover the earth and destroy everything. God graciously chose to save one man and his family, so he warned Noah about the flood and told him to build an ark.
When the ark was complete, God’s judgment did come. The floodwaters covered the earth. Every living thing was destroyed, but Noah and his family were safe inside the ark. God rescued Noah’s family—the family His own Son would be born into. Jesus would warn of God’s coming judgment too, but instead of condemning the world, Jesus would give up His life to rescue sinners. Pray that the Lord would help you clearly communicate the gospel to your children. Pray that the Holy Spirit would lead them to receive Jesus, who rescues us from God’s anger toward sin. (1 Thess. 1:10)
Unit Key Passage
... yet for us there is one God, the Father, from whom are all things and for whom we exist, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things and through whom we exist.
Unit 1 Session 5
Main Point: God is holy
Big Picture Question: What is sin?
- Sin is breaking God's law, and sin separates people from God.
Christ connection: God sent a flood to punish the world for sin, but God rescued Noah and his family. Later, there was an even greater rescue! Jesus came to save people from sin. If we trust in Jesus, He saves us from punishment for our sin.
(Ages 2& 3)
Today's lesson was really good because it was such a mirror of the gospel. As Noah was saved from the flood we were saved from God's punishment of sin. It was so awesome to see them listen, hear and be engaged in the good news. Some were also able to participate and answer questions. There participation during worship is always awesome. I think the best part was the lesson, some of them knew Noah's story but the tie in to Christ was such an awesome thing to teach them and have them answer questions.

What a joy it was today to teach your children! They came eager to learn and participate in class and were excellent listeners. Thank you parents for all that you poured into your children this week because I was really able to see the fruit of your labor.
- Aletheia & Britany
Thank you for the continued opportunity to share the truths of the bible with your children! This week we are focusing on the Holiness of God. That because He is Holy and Just, He must punish sin. We saw an example of this in the narrative of Noah's Ark. It's truly amazing to see the kids connect God's grace, through Jesus Christ , with themselves! As always continue to promote the grey questions from your children and may the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ about in you!
